From playing golf at Pehquenakonck Country Club to dancing on the boardwalk of Atlantic City to fishing out on Peach Lake, Gene Kurka has always been able to balance out a need for speed with time in the serenity of nature.
The man who was dubbed “Speedy” because he rushed to finish his 18 holes of golf every Saturday morning is also the same person who has cultivated a lifelong appreciation for baseball and how cerebral its players can be in any given situation. That concentration and patience is an admired characteristic, one that Kurka borrowed to offset his on-the-go tempo.
